There's no way to '"legally" boot any other kernel than the Chrome OS
kernel on that Chromebook. I used to have it. If you look on the
Armedslack mailing list archives you'll find some notes of mine.

You might hack the firmware and unlock it, but I am not sure if the
Netbsd kernel would compile on it and which open source drivers are
available in the wild.

I have no idea about other Exynos products. It's a great processor and
it would be my dream to have Netbsd running on it.
